    This proves there is no defense for the parham.

     

    Wow...youve beaten a guy, who´s 300 points below you and that should be the proof, that the Parham is the strongest opening in the universe...Parham-worshippers are strange...

    It's a playable opening. There is no refutation for it.


    A real expert has spoken...

    I posted a game by Nakamura.

    He agrees it's a playable opening, so have many other GM's.

    I give a sh.. if its refuted or not, but why are the Parham-worshippers spamming this server with hundreds of different threads about an unimportant little opening???

    Because the opening is a lot more fun than playing your typical, dull, and repetitious 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6.

    At least this opening is not studied to death.

    Most opoonents start raging when they see it and mess up.

    Quoteception.

    And the KG is tactical, but easily stopped. Parham is just as tactical, I don't see why it gets hated on so much.

    Other Than 1 move threats, there are no tactics for White unless Black horribly blunders, and with perfect play that is impossible.

    There are several threats. It leads to an even game. 

    At best, black is more than likely going to make an error.

    But so is white.

    Between human players this opening is fine.

    If black can eqqualize in 8 moves or less against any white moves, the opening is refuted.  Parham = refuted.

    The game is equal from the start. It can lead to either a win or a loss. 

    It's pointless to keep arguing it's refuted. Several GM's like this opening and find it fine.

    No it is not fine. Against a sub-1400 like me you will get a decent game. It is unlikely that you will get a decent game vs. someone higher rated than yourself playing illogical moves.

    How about whatupyodog? He's beaten 1900's on here with this.

    Nakamura has played the Parham just twice under regular time controls, and was lucky to score half a point with it. All the rest from him are blitz games. Last game dated 2005.

    Please go on with your picturesque nonsense.

    Did you read his comment. He said he had even game had he played the middle game properly.

    The opening had nothing to do with the games.

    I don't care who he is.

    It means crap to me.

    The opening is playable and several GM's suport it.

    Who are these 'several GM's'?

    Nakamura said it was playable. Saying its playable is not the same as supporting it. The Muzio Gambit is playable and many other stupid things named after animals. Several GM's???? Quotes please?

    For one Andrew Martin and Hikaru Nakamura.

    "I do believe that 2.Qh5 is a playable move, in fact I had a very good position in the game, and was close to winning if I had in fact played 23.e5."

    Hikaru Nakamura

    Between players of rank 1400-2400 this opening is fine. 

    Unless you're playing a Super GM,

    The game will be even. You are arguing from the point of view of machines.

    Yes he is a National MASTER. And Nakamura said he was WINNING, against a 2600.
